Seared White Wine Vinegar Mackerel with Kyoto Mizuna Potherb and Crispy Deep-fried Tofu                                            
In Japanese cuisine, mackerel is commonly cured with vinegar made with rice or grain, but at DAICHINO RESTAURANT, we use wine vinegar to tone down the sweetness and enhance the crisp flavor. The garnish of muscat grapes and deep-fried tofu is also a refreshing complement to our shime-saba.
1,980 yen (tax inclusive)

Nasu Goto Beef Fillet Cutlet with Gentle Daitokuji Natto Sauce

Daitokuji natto soybeans are made in front of the gates of Kyoto’s Daitokuji Temple. Though delicious as is with the deep flavor and aroma of fermentation, here the natto is combined with fond de veau for a rich sauce inspired by Western cuisine.
3,300 yen (tax inclusive)

Sansho Pepper Fried Bushu Duck and Botchan Kabocha Squash Stuffed with Ginkgo and Mushroom

One whole kabocha squash is generously stuffed with autumn splendors—duck, ginkgo, and mushrooms—and comes with a gentle sauce of fig, Daitokuji natto soybeans, and balsamic vinegar. Dijon mustard spread on the inside of the bowl gives the superbly sweet pumpkin a refreshing tang.
3,850 yen (tax inclusive)

Red Sea Bream flavored with Kombu Kelp—
Enjoy with Sesame Soy Sauce and Egg Yolk
2,200 yen (tax inclusive)
Autumn sea bream seasoned with savory kelp meets spicy Korean-style sauce. Our recommendation: mix the egg yolk with the aromatic vegetables, wrap the mixture with a slice of sea bream, and enjoy.

Braised Nasu Eel with Kujo Green Onion, Cilantro, Other Herbs, and Marinated Persimmon
5,940 yen (tax inclusive)

Eel that is steamed rather than grilled turns out extra plump and moist. Since the fat is also locked in, the refreshing flavors of Kujo green onion and cilantro go very well. Also enjoy the bed of sauteed burdock and marinated persimmon underneath.

Buttery Autumn Pike Conger and Ginkgo, Rice Cooked with a Medley of Root Vegetables Scented with Yuzu Citrus

2,640 yen (tax inclusive)

Pike conger is famously eaten in the summer but in fact become buttery and delicious in the fall. The fish is cooked to fluffy perfection with ginkgo and autumn root vegetables in celebration of a good harvest. The medley of ingredients looks like fallen leaves blown to the roadside by the autumn breeze.
